I’ve posted on the blog everyday this week. I have not done this in the longest time but it’s an exciting week.
Why? Because there are so many awesome Mode Madison vintage pieces hitting the shelves this week. I wanted the opportunity to post and show you four of the many amazing dresses that will be for sale from Saturday at Lost and Found market.
On Monday you got to see the Fairy dress. Then on Tuesday in line with St Patricks day was the release of the green Empress dress. Today, I want to show you my absolute favourite piece this week. A Hawaiin maxi dress that not only exentuates the curves but automatically makes you feel exotic once you’ve put it on. Going for a steal $39.00, I’ll keep it if no one grabs on to this number.
I’m a lover of unique old things from houses to furniture and obviously clothing. Inspired by this, my fashion and style section certain takes on this new flavour.
This gorgeous vintage floral dress didn’t escape my eyes (and hands) and given its age, I love that it’s still in such good nick. Bless the quality of the clothes made back when consumerism wasn’t as big as it is today.
Nothing in this look is new so you can’t pick it up in stores but I’m pleased to say that this dress will be available for you to grab off my hot hands in due course.
Exciting times ahead all.
Much love, Sovanny x

I purchased this maxi boxed dress a few years ago in my early pregnancy days. I thought it would be a good fit for when I got bigger and heavier. The thing is, I was one of of those huge pregnant women and unfortunately the dress didn’t flatter the bump.
The dress however is amazing, and creatively designed. Because it is so baggy, you can adjust the waistline by wrapping the dress around your figure and then adding in a belt to fasten the fabric. The overlapping of fabric adds texture and creates an origami look which I also love doing with my oversized tops. What’s also cool about this maxi is you can adjust the length of the dress with a simple cut as there are no stitches in the hem. So perfect for a short arse like myself.
It did take me almost 3 years to wear but here it is, so I hope you love the look.
Every now and again I decide to pull together the most adorable outfit like this one. This outfit reminds me so much of the daisy chains I use to make as a little girl and the cute flower girls that I’ve seen at weddings.
I’ve only ever come across flower crowns on girls with long hair but wanted to give it a go myself. Like a pair of aviator sunglasses I’m of the view that these pretty crowns look good on just about everyone. The trick is to find one that fits well with the shape of your head and blends with your hair. I had tried a few on before deciding on the dainty hot pink which complemented my dark hair. The larger crowns however just about hid all my hair so unless that’s the look you are going for perhaps steer away for them if your hair is short. The variety is huge so be patient because there is one out there for you.
Then theres the dilemma of what to pair it with. I had in mind to create a simple and feminine look but for something more casual it could work with denim shorts and a singlet. Here are celebrities wearing flower crowns for a some style inspiration. You will notice that these gorgeous celebs all have long locks so I’m feeling proud of myself for styling a piece of fashion for all the women out there with a shorter hairdo.
While the dress, skirt, shoes and bag are all old, the crown and earrings are both still available for purchase from Lovisa. Do you love the look?

In these final weeks of this year, I have decided to go all out on the accessories. You have all seen the amount of clothes I own so now it’s time to show you my bling. Hopefully I will provide you with some styling ideas.
Like most girls, I’ve always loved accessorising. However, since becoming a mum, it’s mostly been with hats, bags and shoes. Apart from the odd occassion, I didn’t bother with jewellery since I gave birth to my daughter until recently. She’s now 20 months old.
Yesterday, I decided to pair a beautifully beaded gold and turquoise statement necklace with a feminine floral dress and some chunky heels. The outfit reminded me of when Jessica Alba stepped out in her Dolce and Gabbana dress. Obviously I look nothing like her but I hope you can see the outfit similarities?

As I write this post I think about how the end of year is fast approaching. I am excited about the new possibilities for this blog in the new year. At the same time I feel as though I will need to commit to a new direction to keep my blog going. It’s mostly been about keeping track of my new years resolution through fashion so what next?!
For now however, I hope you continue to enjoy the outfits I pull together and my ability to not shop for any clothes for one more month! I do provide updates on a daily basis via my Instagram account so feel free to be bombed with photographs and follow any time.
The outfit for this post is a combination of denim on denim with tartan and some statement jewellery. I understand this look is in at the moment so thought I’d give it a Trendy Momma go! Thing is apart from my necklace I have had these items for years now. I’ve just never worn it like this before. Admittedly since I do lean more towards casual dress I love this trend and secretly wish for tartan to stay.
Excuse my fat fingers but I wanted so show you my cool bling

How was the weekend for everyone? Ours was enjoyable but hectic. As my weekend starts on Friday, it was decided that I use the one just passed to get my car fixed and whilst it gets fixed, head in to the local shopping centre and hangout with my baby girl. At the car drop off, I was told that I would not have my car for the ENTIRE day. OMG. I was in the burbs so had no choice but to spend a whole day at the shopping centre! Naturally I was quite excited however as it turns out, I hated the now rare experience. I blew so much money that day on food, on the movies, on more food and on accessories that I’m certain I did not need. I have been so use to a shopping free experience this year that now I feel absolutely guilty when I do shop….even if it’s not breaching my commitment to no new clothes.
So those beautiful accessories that I’m so guilty about…The damage was all done in Lovisa! Too be honest, this was my first time purchasing anything from this store. I am therefore unsure of the quality of their products however I do know I’m in love with so many of their current pieces. I splurged on some great statement necklaces and keen to feature them in my upcoming blog posts beginning with the one today.
The beaded bib is colourful and busy so I thought it would be fitting to wear over what my husband calls the hypnotic dress (because of the white swirls) from one of my favourite designers.
Im wearing: Dress by Alice McCall | Blazer by Zara | Heels by Nine West | Bag by Chanel | Statement necklace by Lovisa
Since there was so much going on with the bib and dress, I didn’t want a pattern overkill so kept it simple when it came to my blazer, bag and shoes.
